St Peter's College Easter message from the College Chaplain

College  April 17, 2019 | Spiritual | St Peter's College Easter message from the College Chaplain

The season of Easter is upon us yet again dear Friends and as a Christian School we continue to reflect on the words of Christ, when He spoke to his disciples before his death on the Cross when He said “Do this in remembrance of me” – Luke 22:19. It is through these few words that made the disciples realise that the time of death that Jesus was talking, is indeed here and that the hour has come.
